While the year was starting back then, Roku made an announcement at the CES about its aim with creating an inexpensive 4K TVs that runs on its own Operating System. The very first set made with Insignia were thus announced just recently earlier this month and now, TCL from China has created a device to make it match. Now there are two beautiful TVs being 55-Inch and 65-Inch S Series 4K Roku TVs which are all going on sale right on the Amazon store for as low as $599.99 and the other larger screen for $999.99 which also have a voice search enabled remote control making it more spectacular.
TCL also made its announcement that the pricing for a further 4 Roku TV are with it’s P130 series although refuses to make any specification concerning when those would be available on the market for purchase. Although there have been a rumor that the time might be set in few weeks to come though not an official date. These would come with an enhanced remote that has a headphone jack so you can listen to your TV privately. The voice search and finder feature is another powerful package within the TV. The series starts with a 43-inch set for $499.99, a 50-inch model for $599.99, a 55-inch set for $699.99, and a 65-inch one for $1,099.99.
With a very large market with big competition, TCL might be a new trend in the niche of TV makers but its still questionable if the company can suddenly get a foothold in such an environment. With other tech giants such as Samsung and Sony, a TV running Roku’s OS might be a question and the success of reaching out to the wider audience might still be a little doubt though.
(Why would you buy it if you were already paying for Netflix?) Elsewhere in the industry, manufacturers like Vizio are doing away with the smart TV interface altogether and instead putting connected tablets at the heart of the viewing experience.
